Al Green: I Can't Stop
Chris Roberts, Uncut, January 2004
AND HE CAN'T (STOP). The Reverend Al Green (some of his Memphis flock have to be told he was once a pop singer before he forsook it for gospel) has decided to record some secular songs again. His first since '94's Don't Look Back (itself a "comeback"), and — more significantly — his first with Willie Mitchell, the producer behind his greatest hits, since '86. I think all fans of old-school soul will join me in getting rather excited about this and saying: wow.
